About Boral Timber Flooring

A century of experience

Boral Timber has been developing and producing wood products for well over a century.

In 1892 Allen Taylor, a young man from Wagga Wagga, established a timber merchant business in Sydney, operating sawmills on the New South Wales coast. He also served as the Lord Mayor of Sydney for six years and was knighted in 1911.

During the 1980s Allen Taylor and Co, together with other timber businesses, was acquired by Boral. Today Boral Timber is one of the largest manufacturers of native Australian hardwood products and the industry leader in hardwood flooring.

From its headquarters in Sydney, Boral Timber coordinates its production and distribution operations across Australia. The company's flooring products are produced at long established mills at Herons Creek and Kyogle in northern New South Wales as well as at the purpose-built engineered flooring manufacturing facility at Murwillumbah in northern New South Wales.

Boral Timber has become one of the largest suppliers of hardwood and softwood timber in Australia with a diverse product range encompassing flooring, decking, furniture timber, cladding, decorative and structural timbers.

Architects from around the world have been quick to seize upon the rare combination of strength and beauty offered by Australian hardwood provided by Boral Timber. Prized for rich colour, consistent grain, workability, high density and durability they are among the finest decorative timbers available.

Boral Timber is committed to sustainability and has achieved AFS Chain of Custody certification for all its timber products. This provides peace of mind that Boral Timber sources its products from sustainably managed and legal forestry.
